Decrease question
Hello All,

I have yet another question. As posted before, I am working on a fitted tank from Blue Sky Alpaca. I am at the "Shape armhole" part of the pattern and the following instructions have me a little confused:

Bind off (3) sts at beg of next 2 rows (74). Then, dec 1 st each end every other row (8) times, ending with RS row complete.

My question is this: The pattern does not indicate how to decrease and the tutorial in this site shows various ways to do it. Any suggestions???

As always, I thank you!

I generally k2tog for armhole shaping. I suppose you could do a ssk on the right side for a left leaning decrease and a k2tog on the left side for a right leaning decrease, but I really don't think it'll make any difference on the edge stitches. :thinking:

Ok, I'm still confused. I will look at it on my lunch break and email again if it doesn't work. Thanks!

I just re-read my post and I should have said right/left side as it faces you, not as you wear it.
